The URock Chair

The Battery Conservancy launched in 2012 the "America’s Design Competition - Draw up a Chair", an international competition that called upon designers from the America’s and asked them to rethink the classic concept of public urban furniture.

The first word used to describe the design criteria of the new iconic Battery Park chair is moveable. In its most basic sense, it means people should be able to move it easily from one place to another. But that just seems too narrow, too boring. Why not create a chair that also moves without moving? A chair that gives you the option to sit still or just have some fun?

That is the concept of the “U Rock” Chair. It gives you the choice of sitting straight in a comfortable and beautiful chair or to rock it out in a fun, cool new take on the classic rocking chair. You just have to flip it over. Its design is friendly to all ages and being light, stackable and easy to carry around, it also contributes to many different social arrangements and situations. It can be serious or funny depending on your mood. Just like mullets, except awesome. The coolest part about it is that everybody can take a part on making them!
